Furthermore, the powerful full-size luxury Audi A8 TDI sedan is reported to get an estimated 24mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. Audi reports that the diesel-powered A8 will have an output of 240 horsepower and can do 0-60mph in just 6.4 seconds.
Audi TDI® Clean Diesel Technology

At Audi Santa Barbara, customers don’t have to wait another nine months to check out an Audi diesel model. Already, the Audi A3 2.0 TDI is available.
In the realm of high efficiency, all fuels and engines are not created equal. Consider the Audi TDI® clean diesel engine, which achieves better fuel economy than a comparable gasoline engine while producing fewer CO2 emissions. Plus, the car’s thrilling off-the-line acceleration propels the car with 140 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque, deliver thrills with every press of the gas pedal.
Another Audi TDI® model now available at Audi Santa Barbara is the 2013 Audi Q7 3.0 TDI Prestige SUV.
